What would happen if, in an alternate universe, Katy Perry was in "The Help?" Would it have been like when you meet your doppelganger or when dogs and cats shack up together or something? The mind reels!

We'll never find out now, because pesky scheduling conflicts kept the blue-haired songstress from making her dramatic debut in this feel-good favorite. Seriously.

As she told Teen Vogue, "I wasn't going to be Emma Stone or anything — but I couldn't because the shooting schedule conflicted with the release of my record."

She was pretty bummed about it because she had a gut feeling that "it was going to be an important film," Perry told the teen mag. "Not that I need to do drama first, but I do want to do something that makes a strong impression. You don't really get off the hook being a musician first … I feel like the stakes are really high."

We'll always have "The Smurfs," right? Remember, when she was Smurfette? That totally happened.

And if you still want a gander at Katy Perry onscreen, you'll be able to see her in three amazing dimensions this July in her concern film, "Katy Perry: Part of Me." From religious teen to fireworks-popping dream, Perry will be doling out life details "like you're seeing it from my best friend-buddy perspective," as she told MTV.

We'll never get to see her take a bite of Minnie's special chocolate pie, but at least we'll be able to see her rock that Kathy Beth Terry headgear once again.
